Cape Friends of Wildlife to conduct burrowing owl census

May 19, 2017
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife in conjunction with FGCU is conducting a burrowing owl census in the Cape Saturday, June 3, and Sunday, June 4, from 7-11 a.m. both days. Volunteers are needed to help conduct this census. Those interested can visit https://goo.gl/forms/LBZvxBT-zkcnctpgt1 for a sign-up form or contact Santiago Luaces at snluaces@eagle.fgcu.edu for the form. He will email you it.

The initial meetings will be held at Rotary Park at 7 a.m. both days where you will be given and a map and directions on how to take the census. The hope is to survey at least half of the burrowing owl nests. It is estimated that there are 2,000 to 4,000 nests. If each team surveys 50 nests each day, about 40 volunteers a day in teams of two will be needed to survey about 2,000 nests.

Please volunteer to help Cape Coral's Official City Bird get off the threatened category on the Endangered Species Act and protect them for future generations to see and marvel over.
